Later, these inputs are ranked by the algorithms and the chatbot selects the appropriate response based on the rankings.

Natural Language Understanding (NLU)

NLU converts text into structured data to understand the input given by a user.

It enables the chatbot to figure out what exactly the user input means and classify its appropriate intention.
